  57. 57. CNET comments “Chatteris has been a great graduate experience. The learning curve is steep, but once you get there after the first month or two, everything falls into place and you can really start making a difference in your school and throughout Hong Kong. Go for everything. Don't spend your evenings sitting on your sofa. Set up a life for yourself here even if it's only for a year. Branch out and meet all sorts of people. The goodbyes will be a lot harder, but the memories will be that much better.” Laura, CNET, USA “The Chatteris International Graduate Programme has been an excellent opportunity for me to develop both professionally and personally. My self-confidence has grown immeasurably and I'm now willing to take on challenges and get involved with the projects that interest me.” Stephanie, CNET, UK “Has been a fantastic year that initially I did not think would be as rewarding as it has been. You really need to just throw yourself into everything Chatteris has to offer and you will get so much from the great experience!” Sophie, CNET, UK 58 Chatteris Educational Foundation copyright 2015
  58. 58. Chatteris Educational Foundation copyright 2015 59 CNET comments “Being involved in the CIGP has been a really good experience. I have really appreciated all of the cultural activities I have been able to get involved in such as Chinese New Year festivities, Dragon boating, and Mid-Autumn Festival. I would say that the job can be quite challenging at times and you have to keep an open mind and be able to work well in a team as a lot of the things you get involved with will require teamwork. I have loved Hong Kong, it is such a fantastic city and has been a great place to live in and explore for the last ten months, I will definitely be coming back here!” Gemma, CNET, UK “I value the opportunity to have worked internationally with people from other countries. I value having learned about Chinese culture without the obstruction of stereotypes. I value having made an impact on increasing the English-speaking confidence of my students and finally, I value having seen Asia through different eyes.” Rosie, CNET, USA
  59. 59. 60 CNET comments “It (the Chatteris International Graduate Programme) offers you the chance to experience a new culture, meet a very different set of people and work in a real school. You also get plenty of support throughout the year and feel part of an international team.” Nick, CNET, UK “If you want a good challenge and like overcoming obstacles, then this programme will definitely satisfy your whim. It will equip you with transferable skills and tools for any given work environment. It will supply you with endless priceless moments and memories. You will have probably the best year of your life so far! Caroline, CNET, UK “I value most the skills I have acquired or improved on, for example flexibility, communication skills, organisation skills, confidence leadership etc. I have also cherished the opportunity to travel and will never forget Hong Kong, or the friends I have made whilst here.” Hannah, CNET, UK Chatteris Educational Foundation copyright 2015
